The best film that I recommend not watching
4 August 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

For me the most disturbing murder scene in all of cinema is the murder of Tom Wilkinsons character in Michael Clyaton. It is the opposite of visceral, and the clinical and impersonal nature of it is deeply distributing.

The Mountain is an extremely well crafted film in every way. it is an unbelievably distressing film. To me more disturbing than any explicit horror film could hope to be.

If you have a stalwart heart, or no heart. maybe it is for you
